Details & Specifications

Are you interested in a attractive legal tender coin that harkens to the era when silver coins were still struck for circulation? These 1949 Canadian silver dollars are a special commemorative issue for that year only, recognizing the addition of Newfoundland to the Canadian Federation. In addition to their special edition design, these coins have a fine silver content of 0.60 troy ounce and are 80% pure.

The reverse design features a venerable ship at sea, with the inscription "FLOREAT TERRA NOVA" which means "flourishing of [the] new land," referring to Newfoundland. The year of issue "1949" is placed just beneath the Latin inscription. "CANADA" curves along the top rim while "DOLLAR" is placed along the bottom rim. On the obverse, a left-facing effigy of King George VI is encircled by Latin abbreviations that translate to "George VI, by the grace of God, King."

Silver coins like these Canadian dollars were removed from circulation by most countries around the world in the 1960s and 1970s. They serve as windows to a bygone time when silver coinage was the norm. These 1949 Newfoundland commemoratives were issued with a total mintage of 672,218 coins, adding to their collectible appeal. You can add to your collection or your silver stack with these Newfoundland Ship Canadian silver dollars from Gainesville Coins.
